According to the country’s Aviation Authority (CAA), Greece extended the air directives of domestic flights for another week, until September 6.

Passengers from mainland Greece to the islands will be allowed to travel if they present a vaccination certificate or a recovery certificate, according to a CAA notice. It is also acceptable to present a PCR negative test completed within the last 72 hours or a rapid test performed 48 hours before the travel.

For people travelling from islands to the mainland, the same regulations apply on the previous weeks, according to SchengenVisaInfo.com.

Travelers between the ages of 12 and 17 can travel inside Greece by showing a rapid test that is valid for 24 hours. These restrictions are in place to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), Greece has identified 581,315 COVID-19 infection cases and 13,636 deaths. In the previous 24 hours, 1,581 new Coronavirus cases have been discovered across the country.

Until now, the country has vaccinated 65.8% of the population with at least one dose of the vaccine, with approximately 63.4 percent of the population having been fully vaccinated.
